Out Of Order? Lance Armstrong’s Lawyer Says The Whole Grand Jury Is Out Of Order

Granted, the attorney for Lance Armstrong, Brian Daly, made his statement with a little more gravitas than the character Arthur Kirkland displayed in the classic scene from …And Justice for All, but Daly’s message was clear: that the grand jury which has been convened regarding his client’s alleged doping is a sham of the highest order. Via Reuters:

“This is a story full of anonymous sources and more inappropriate leaks of grand jury testimony designed to create a circus-like atmosphere,” Armstrong’s attorney Brian Daly said in a statement.

“The power of the federal government is being abused to pursue dated and discredited allegations, and that’s flat-out wrong, unethical, un-American, and a waste of taxpayer dollars.

I don’t mean to split hairs here, counselor, but do you want to know some real examples of things which are un-American?

Dating Sheryl Crow and a very public bromance with Matthew McConaughey. Those, good sir, are un-American. In the days of McCarthyism, those trespasses against the very ideals for what our great nation stands for were enough to get a person not only blacklisted, but possibly deported. And really, that’s all you and your bicycle-riding client are, Brian Daly, if that’s your real name: a couple of card-carrying, pinko commie bastards. Now put that in your pipe and smoke it, Comrade.
